There is attached a copy of my letter to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, recommending you for the Nobel Prize in Economics. Included also are the materials re: Sonic Bloom that I will send as attachments to that letter.

It is my earnest prayer that the Swedish Academy will see the world-wide needs that your invention addresses so remarkably well. May the Lord bless you and be with you as you continue your work on behalf of the world's needy populations.

Please let me know, via e-mail, if this meets with you approval.

May it be my privilege to submit the name of Dan Carlson as a candidate for the Nobel Prize in Economics. Dan Carlson is the inventor of the Sonic Bloom System - a combination of high frequency sounds and a foliar spray which greatly enhances agricultural productivity. Attachments A and B more fully describe the process involved. Attachment C is a list of 20+ published articles about the amazing food and forest products enhancements that Dan Carlson's invention has brought about.

Too much of modern-day agriculture has become dependent on massive applications of insecticides and pesticides. The earlier use of DDT brought about world-wide decimation of song bird populations. In and near the more industrialized regions these bird populations are well below one-percent of those existing prior to the use of DDT. The bird songs in Dan Carlson's Sonic Bloom system replace this loss. The leaf pore openings called stomata are stimulated by the bird songs to open fully so that the application of foliar sprays is made as much as 700% more highly effective than the wide spread use of chemical sprays and foliates.

A new door has been opened in our understanding of the growth processes in the botanical world. Dan Carlson has shown that plant growth comes about principally at the plant leaf surfaces. At the leaf surfaces, sunlight, bird songs and nutrients come together to stimulate the uptake of water and carbon dioxide. Further plant leaf processes then come about to produce oxygen, thus another benefit to come from this discovery by Dan Carlson. This letter is being submitted on the 20th day of August, 2001.

Appointment to a position on the State Water resources Control Board of the State of California


1950s Dow Chemical Company - Two years plus in the Physics Lab specializing in Infrared spectral analysis of Company products. Designed and built a first optical chopper to enhance spectrometer performance.

1950's Stanford Research Institute - Department of Physics ...about three years. Research on microwave discharges in Helium for a Department of Defense contract. Analyzed optical spectra for use in communications and signaling applications.

1950's On National Aeronautics and Space Administration at the Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California.

  1. About three years in the Instrumentation Division as head of optics lab with some six to seven employees.Work was in designing, building and operating optical systems to "photograph" projectiles at hyper-sonic speeds.
  2. The remainder of my employment was with the Space Sciences Division in the following areas:
    1. Obtaining high resolution infrared spectra of gasses known to exist in planetary atmospheres employing a long path gas cell and a high resolution spectrometer.
    2. Measuring these same special features for gasses in the atmospheres of Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn using the McMath Solar telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory near Tucson, AZ.
    3. Combining the laboratory and observatory data to determine the amounts of these gasses in the planet's atmospheres.
    4. Publications in the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer and in the Astrophysical Journal.
    5. For the last four years prior to my retirement, I took on the assignment to design and have constructed an optical interferometer and high vacuum system for obtaining precise telescope mirror effects introduced when cooled to the liquid helium temperature of 4 degrees absolute.The objective was to have a mirror suited for use in an Infrared Orbiting Telescope and operating at the liquid Helium temperature

      Since retirement from NASA, I have spent my time learning about the magnetic healing process.So many had written about and sold magnets for healing with little or no solid evidence.I studied both the Physics and Biological applications.For the first time in my paper on "Magnetic Healing" the Physics of paramagnetism and diamagnetism are fully described vis-a-vis their effects on the human circulatory system.A copy of this paper is attached with some attachments.

      Most recently I have had the occasion to study the effects of sonic frequencies along with the application of minerals to very greatly enhance the growth rate and output of fruits, vegetables and many other agricultural products.Use of these seem to have the potential to revolutionize much of agriculture.This finding (first put forth by Dan Carlson of Minnesota) is very timely as the world needs continue to grow.

      My own first experiments show some very promising results.Since agriculture is so dominant in California, it seems not too much to anticipate a 15 to 20 percent increase in productivity where this methodology is employed. Future applications in the acceleration of growth in the production of hardwoods should be pursued.

      Since these results rely on the action induced in the stoma (leaf pore openings) many agricultural modalities will be in need of a change of course.
